Q: Why is my new RO system not lowering the ppm of my water?
A: Double check the membrane insert(s) are pushed all the way into the plastic membrane housing(s). This can be a little tricky and you have to push hard.
Q: Why does the drain water continue to flow after the float valve has shut?
A: If this is happening, there are three probable causes: 1) The float isn't shutting off the product flow sufficiently. Hold up the float with your hand- if it shuts off within one minute, the float is not 'shutting off' the flow, and should be replaced. 2) Low pressure if the unit is running at 35 psi or less, the valves have a hard time building pressure and shutting off. You will need higher pressure. 3) Lack of flow restrictor then the unit again, has difficulty building pressure. The flow restrictor is either a white cylinder inline (clearly visible) on the drain line, or a small black tube inside the drain line (remove drain line from housing elbow QC fitting to inspect).
Q: How do I remove the cap to the membrane housing?
A: First remove the tubing from the Quick Connect fitting. To do this, make sure all pressure is off the fitting, the press on the collet with your thumbnail (or a similar tool). Then pull the tubing out. To reinstall, make sure tubing is cut flat, then just push it in until you feel it hit the bottom.
Q: Is tap water bad for my garden?
A: Tap water is not necessarily bad for the garden, however it may contain chlorine and possibly chloramine which are very detrimental to organic gardening and beneficial microbial activity. If using beneficial organisms or organic nutrients in your garden, it is recommended to filter your water source with either a dechlorinator or reverse osmosis system.
